Check out the variable org-agenda-block-separator. C-h v org-agenda-block-separator RET says:

| org-agenda-block-separator is a variable defined in `org-agenda.el'.
| Its value is 61
| Documentation:
| The separator between blocks in the agenda.
| If this is a string, it will be used as the separator, with a newline added.
| If it is a character, it will be repeated to fill the window width.
| If nil the separator is disabled.  In `org-agenda-custom-commands' this
| addresses the separator between the current and the previous block.
| You can customize this variable.

(61 is '=')

So you can customize it and set it to a string of your choice, or you
can display the block agenda in a window of width <= 80 chars and then
print the window. Both suggestions untested but I hope one or the other
or both work.
